BUFFALO, N.Y. — Several events will be happening Monday in celebration of Labor Day.

After a year away because of the COVID pandemic, the Buffalo Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO will hold its annual Labor Day parade and picnic in South Buffalo.

The parade route will begin at McKinley Parkway and Dorrance Avenue, and it will end at Cazenovia Park. A stretch of McKinley Parkway will be closed to traffic from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There's also an event in the Village of Cassadaga, where the first post-COVID parade celebrating Labor Day will start at 11 a.m. There's a theme this year: Labor of Love. The parade will feature several local music corps, athletes, first responders, antique cars, and tractors.

Over in Clarence Center, the Labor Day parade will have some special highlights, including a Disney princess and Spider-Man. It starts at noon on Goodrich Road.
